jobs are fine. the way to get it working again is to lower taxes. increase domestic energy production and that policy could really be revamped. it's really a shame. workers are poised to create a lot of new jobs. they have the capital to do so. the number one reason they're not doing it is because of the obama care mess. they'll have a wait and see attitude, see if they'll add workers full time or hire new workers and actually quite the opposite, laying people off and keeping them below full time until this obama care problem is solved. >> i'm going to give you a moment to respond there. let me jump in there. where rick leaves off. of course we know a steady climb in employment is better than being stagnant. apart from what rick is considering obama care as a blocker, what would you say are some of the blockers that are preventing more robust job growth to the point where we have that happy days are here feeling that permeates the air? >> i don't think obama care is the thing that is doing it because frankly i think most larger groups, corporations actually provide health care. i thin
